My husband and I decided to try out this place for our Anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed, the place is very nice and our server was exceptional. The social distancing of the tables was great and we felt comfortable. The food was delicious, we had the sea bream and the duck + desserts ☺️ the sent us home with a small box of Italian style cookies which was very nice. I would recommend this place and look forward to going back.

With great food and even better service, Aielli never disappoints. During Covid, we are only going to restaurants that we trust and Aielli is definitely one of them. Aielli is a great neighbourhood spot in Port Credit - a hidden gem! They have built a beautiful patio with heaters which will hopefully extend the patio season. And, the menu has been recently updated with some great new additions.

Probably one of the best meals and experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. We visited for my 30th birthday. The food was tremendous, as was the service. Social distancing protocols were in place and staff was wearing masks. The server even took it upon himself to find out it was my birthday, liking from the booking through OpenTable, and put a candle on the cheesecake we ordered plus gave us a little takeaway box of Italian cookies. I have been coming here for years with my family, and we'll absolutely be back.

Lovely place. Service is wonderful. There are many good restaurants on the Lakeshore in Port Credit, but this is the only fine food restaurant. Wine list is extensive. Menu is imaginative and has lots of variety. We recommend chef's choice. I am not a calamari eater, but the calamari appetizer here was divine. And the veal melts in your mouth. Pasta is homemade, the ravioli was like eating little pillows. The Tiramisu is light and flavourful.

Food was mediocre, wasn't that impressed. We asked for a table on the patio, they said we couldn't because of social distancing and then they sat the next table on the patio.

We hadn't been here since my son's 'hockey years'; however, was even better than we remembered. We want's something nice and comfortable with good food and good atmosphere. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely go back soon. Also of note, considering the wonderful evening, good food, good service, and comfortable atmosphere when the bill arrived it was very easy to feel that we received great value for the dollar. We would recommend Aielli highly.

The food was excellent but the service was horrible.; poor timing, had to find/pour our own bottle of wine, had to ask for refills on water. The music was inconsistent; to loud, then no music. The type of music when playing didn’t seem appropriate for fine dining. Very disappointing.

Booked for Valentine’s Day day dinner for 9:30 reservation. Waited 30 minutes. Never got seated. We’re ignored. Only one waitress said we will be with you and then nothing. Chaos among wait staff and confusion in kitchen. We left at 10 pm and headed to Reds Square one. What a waste of time and embarrassing going to Aielli. I know there food is good but they were either short on staff or not geared for occasions. Will not be recommending.

We went for Valentines Day. They had clearly overbooked and understaffed for the night. Once we were seated we waited about 20 minutes before they took our drink order. We waited about another 20 minutes for our drinks. One of the staff took our menus before we ordered and it took over 40 minutes for the ordered to be placed. After being at our table for an hour and a half we got our meals. The waitress and other staff asked us twice during that time what we had ordered. This was common for all tables around, wrong such as orders being taken to tables, no menus , forgetting to put bread on the tables or water etc...
As mentioned after waiting an hour and a half for our meal one of the staff asked us after 15 minutes of having our food if we were done and if they could take our plates (the only time something happened quickly. We then waited about a half hour for the bill asking several times for the bill. No dessert because we simply wanted to get out of there.
Staff were very stressed all night yelling at each other and some complaining about being screamed at by other staff.
We used to visit this restaurant frequently 10 to 15 years ago and stopped going due to a bad experience. We thought we would give it a shot since we hadn’t been there for awhile. Having shared 25 years of valentines dinners with my wife I would have too say that this by far was the worst dining experience we have had.
It is too bad because I remember a time when we looked forward to eating at this restaurant.

Great place for an intimate meal. My husband and I went for our Valentines day dinner and had a nice quiet date. The wine recommendation was very helpful, the staff was friendly and food was delicious.
Service could have been a bit prompt, but overall it was a good experience. We had the salmon and a chocolate Tartufo, both finger licking good! We also got a cute bag of biscottis as a return gift. Thanks for the lovely dinner

The front didn’t seem to be managed well, no full time host/hostess.

No specials were announced, no drink menu provided.

Took a while to get food.

My wife and I just moved to the area and thought to try this place out. What a great place! All the staff and the chef/owner were very kind and friendly. They made sure to greet us throughout the evening.

The food was fantastic! We eat Italian all the time so we were very impressed when we got our meals.

Overall every aspect of the restaurant is superb.

Thank you Aielli!

I look up the rating and rank for this place prior to going, my spouse made the selection. Rank as top 5 in Mississauga. On my reservation special request I indicated I am celebrating my spouse's birthday and something romantic for seating. Maybe this was missed, not sure by whom. I got there 15 minutes prior to my reservation and was seated immediately. The seating was in the middle of two tables next to me was a child with the parents lying on the couch, which extends to .y seating all along the wall. She was lifting her leg up and down, seemed like she is bored. I found that disturbing and the parent not saying anything. Based on my observation thre were other seating available that could have made my experience more enjoyable being there for the first time celebrating a special occasion with my spouse and teenage boys. I'd say this should not be top 5 and more like a causual dining.

The service was so friendly and welcoming, as if we were regulars and not there for the first time. My veal scallopini was mouthwatering, and my husband loved his penne arrabiate. It was our 40th anniversary and we won't wait for a special occasion to go back.
